Teaching English to school students in Saigon

  • Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Apply online through Cadip's website: http://www.cadip.org

Volunteers will work in a free primary school for children whose families are too poor to be able to send them to public schools. There are more than 120 children at the school, aged 6 to 16, joining 6 classes. These children come from many different districts of Ho Chi Minh City, some of them even take almost 2 hours to get to the school. After classes, many of them have to help their parents earn money by selling lottery tickets, collecting scrap (plastic bags, glass …) or babysitting. The school provides the children not only with primary education with focus on literacy and numeracy, but also with meals at lunch.

The volunteers will be divided into smaller groups to discuss and then organize fun activities about health, sport, environment, education, etc. The aim is to create an active environment for the children to practice English. Although they study English at school, their English skills are very basic and they can hardly communicate with foreigners. Moreover, because of limited facilities and skilled staff, they have little access to recreational activities. In the afternoon, volunteers can help renovate the classrooms or repaint the fences and walls.

Project dates:

  • June 6 - June 18, 2016
  • August 1 - August 13, 2016
  • September 26 - October 8, 2016
  • November 21 - December 3, 2016
